Shot Notes

This was our hotel pool in Dahab, Egypt. I used a tripod, a 30-second exposure and a small aperture to get the lights to sparkle. To process this image used a colour balance layer to make the pool a nicer shade of blue. I used a tone curve to boost the mid tones. Finally, I moved the black point in on a levels layer to make the sky jet black.

    What am I doing here in cold and rainy Spain? Great shot! Need an assistant photographer?

    I wish I was back in Egypt too. Not sure what I would do with an assistant photographer. You would probably learn more from this blog. I give away all my tricks and tips here.

    Don’t knock the rain in Spain. It’s still snowing here.
